Do More, Use Less - Your Guide to Hosting Green Events
Planning a fantastic event? Make sure you keep it green by following these sustainable tips and alternatives so your events leave a lasting impact on those who go and not on the planet.
Keep it central - minimize travel time and make sure it’s accessible by public transit or on foot.
Keep it clean - use LEED certified buildings such as SEH or District House for event space when possible as they minimize energy usage.
Keep them online - Avoid paper waste with sending invites through social media, eventbrite, or email.
Activities and Prizes
Think reusable - gifts, prizes and activities should all be able to be reused by those they’re given to and for other events to minimize plastic and paper waste.
Think Green - Give plants as gifts when possible!
Keep it real - only order the necessary amount of food to reduce potential waste.
Keep it small - serve small finger foods, buffet style to get rid of those leftovers easily.
Encourage a mindset - ask guests to bring their own mugs, water bottles, and Tupperware. It’s a community affair, after all!
